I've always enjoyed watching the F1 as it's a great competitive sport that has some really exciting and tense moments. Over all the years of watching it, I'd have to say Monaco is my favourite track due to the tight twists and turns that come with the street race track. Alongside this is the amazing setting that hosts the track with the luxury housing and spectacular harbour full of hundreds of superyachts, it would be a dream to visit there one day. When I first started watching it I didn't realise how much skill it took to race in the F1. When you think about how fast they fly around the corners while battling with other drivers to get that top spot, it's not surprising you have to be at the top of your game. If you couple this with the amount of time they spend in their cars during the race, racing for well over an hour straight requires a lot more effort than cruising down the motorway.

The Monaco Grand Prix is probably one of the most demanding courses where you need all of your concentration, so the Martini ad featuring model Jessiqa Pace that was located close to the tricky Loews hairpin didn't help the drivers. Back in 2009, it was a race to remember when Lewis Hamilton spun out right next to the board during qualifying, with Williams Martini Racing driver Felipe Massa getting sidetracked every time he went past it. Luckily for Jenson Button, he stayed in control and went on to win the race. This weekend the Martini board returns, although not in the same distracting position. Anyone flying in via helicopter will be greeted with the model's picture at the busiest heliport in Monaco. If you want to see what the drivers had to say about the advert then check out the video below.
